DESCRIPTION

A beautiful house on one of Cornwall's foremost and most desirable period harbourside terraces, enjoying breath-taking and unobstructed 180 degree views over the harbour from 4 floors, encompassing Greenbank to The Roseland peninsula, St Mawes and beyond. Beautifully presented and versatile accommodation of over 3,000ft with useful cellar and sunny rear garden.

THE PROPERTY

16 Dunstanville Terrace is an exceptional home which provides extremely deceptive, extensive, and highly adaptable accommodation, currently configured to provide a ground floor 'apartment', ideal for visiting friends, a dependant relative or lucrative source of letting income, with minimal inconvenience.

Throughout, the property has been meticulously maintained with a host of many characterful features with, it is believed, the original parts of the house dating from the 1700's, subsequent to which the imposing four-storey facade was added, along with the other properties on this landmark terrace, home for many Packet Ship captains in the 1800's.

The basement area provides useful storage, together with a utility room and workshop with access to the front terrace garden. Many rooms, including the two main reception rooms and two 'master' bedrooms face the water, with square bay windows at ground and first floor levels, and a dormer on the top floor, providing particularly impressive views.

At first floor level, the kitchen/breakfast room enjoys direct access through a porch/conservatory onto the rear gardens, which have been beautifully landscaped to provide many terraces which are paved, gravelled, lawned and decked to provide interest on all levels, enclosed by walling to both sides.

THE LOCATION

Dunstanville Terrace needs little introduction to those who know Falmouth, being the landmark terrace as you approach the town, past the Greenbank Hotel, with the harbourside on the left, over which Number 16 enjoys one of the finest views.

The Royal Cornwall Yacht Club is directly opposite, Falmouth Marina is a ten minute walk along North Parade, and the town's selection of restaurants, bars, galleries, artisan bakeries and banks etc, are just over the brow of the hill, down Falmouth's Old High Street.
